Newcastle United have finally completed the signing of former Montpellier attacking midfielder Remy Cabella, and it was all done and dusted yesterday, as the Chronicle had reported that Cabella would be jetting in to complete the move – and they were certainly right about that.

The 24-year-old is a versatile player and can play on either wing and also in a Yohan Cabaye like central role, and he has signed a six year deal at the club.
It will be interesting to see where Alan Pardew plays him – and it may depend on who else we can get through the door this summer – but we would expect Pardew to play him on the right wing.
Remy returned from being part of the French squad in the World Cup – which Germany won last night when they beat Argentina with a late extra time goal (113 minutes) from Mario Goetze, who showed great skill in chesting the ball down before guiding it first time into the goal with his left foot.
This is what Cabella had to say yesterday:
“”It is great to finally be a Newcastle player.”
“This is a move that I really wanted to make, as I have heard nothing but good things about Newcastle United from everyone I spoke to.”
“I wanted to join a great English club and that is why I have arrived here. I’m looking forward to pulling on the shirt and playing in this magnificent stadium, and I will give this Club my maximum.”
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew was a delighted man yesterday and this is what he had to say about Remy:
“Remy is a player who has been on our radar for a while and we are delighted to bring him to the Club.” “He is a player who I am sure will excite our fans.”
“He has flair, hard work and commitment, and is going to bring a talent, energy and quality to St. James’ Park that our supporters will enjoy.”
“Remy has great ideas when the ball comes to him, and along with Siem de Jong is going to improve an area where we definitely needed some help.”
Remy Cabella is a great signing for us, and we just have to hope we have more good players coming through the door – maybe even this week.
